Honey Wasabi Mayonnaise Dressing or Dipping Sauce

I got the inspiration for honey wasabi mayonnaise dressing or dipping sauce from the honey mustard dressing or dipping sauce I had in some restaurants. I love wasabi in sushi and wasabi has similar flavor profile as mustard. So, why not use wasabi instead? I experimented with the ingredients and started to serve it in parties. People liked it and asked me for the recipe. Outside posting the recipes on the website, surprisingly I never measured the ingredients when I cooked for myself. So, I could only tell people what the ingredients were and not the quantity. After so many inquiries from people, I decided to measure the ingredients when making it so that I could give the exact recipe. So, below is the recipe. It is so easy to make and takes less than 10 min.

I have used it as dressing for salad or dipping sauce. For salad, I normally serve it with lettuce, carrot, tomato, cucumber, spinach, arugula, dried cranberry, and walnut. You can use any greens or vegetables you want, though. You can add diced egg, chicken, or bacon if you want protein in the salad. I sometimes add feta cheese in the salad, too. As a dipping sauce, I use it on vegetables (cucumber, celery, carrot) or fried shrimp, oysters, or chicken tenders.


  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 3 teaspoon wasabi paste or to taste
  • 2 drops of honey or to taste
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice or to taste
  • pinch of salt or to taste
  • pinch of black pepper or to taste


  1. Place mayonnaise, wasabi paste, honey, lemon juice, salt, pepper in a small bowl. Whisk the ingredients until smooth. Taste it and add more seasoning if needed.
  2. Serve it as salad dressing or dipping sauce for vegetables or fried shrimp, chicken tenders, or oysters.
